And it starts. Curious to see how the reviews will turn out for this game. I'm still getting it tomorrow to judge it on my own but I'm really worried on how the story will be told. The story it's trying to tell it's really complicated. If it doesn't execute it well then the game will suffer from it. Heavy Rain had its flaws but heck was the story a hell of a ride.

I might just have to cave in and buy the dahm game.... TLOU, GTA:V, B:TS.... I WANT MY PS4! GAH DEM EET!

BattleAxe2023d ago

Why? All of the games you just listed are on the PS3...

Tiqila2023d ago (Edited 2023d ago )

I think he might wanted to wait for next gen games but the current ps3 lineup makes it hard not to buy more ps3 games.

I want to add GT 6 to that list, though I am not sure when its coming, still a must-have.

N82022d ago

The games just don't stop. I can't help myself

The_Con-Sept2021d ago

Tiqila nailed it perfectly. See I bought all of those games above... But I am trying to save another 200 bux for the PS4... and yet Sony keeps making it harder and harder to hold out for the PS4...

I thought this game was really intriguing even when people criticized it after e3.

I hope it gets fair treatment from the rest of the press. It's something unique and for that reason alone it deserves attention.

I think we also need to prepare for a wave of idiots saying "movie game" even though none of them will actually try this title for themselves.

starchild2022d ago

This game looks great. I really enjoyed Heavy Rain and I think this one has the potential to be even better.

Sheikah2022d ago

OH! Has the embargo been lifted? Or is it just one of the "We want more hits, so we'll pretend we didn't get the memo" pages?

FunkMacNasty2022d ago (Edited 2022d ago )

I agree.. I'm going to try it for myself and ignore review scores. After all, this type of game can bring low review scores from critics because they will say "the gameplay isn't fun", or something like that. But "fun" is highly subjective in terms of videogame tastes, right? I mean, a lot of people criticized Heavy Rain for being driven by QTE's and button prompts, but I thought that game was loads of fun and sank a ton of hours into it, trying to achieve each ending.

vallencer2022d ago

I got to play it early and I can assure you the story is very well told. You'll enjoy the game.

Jazz41082022d ago (Edited 2022d ago )

Destructoid gave it 5 out of 10. I had this preordered but im going to cancel and put my money on a next gen game. This is my opinion.

If the Walking Dead Game can get GOTY, why can't Beyond Two Souls?

da_2pacalypse2023d ago

Because... last of us, GTAV and Bioshock Infinite. But I'm sure this will compete.

admiralvic2023d ago

If you want the honest truth, The Walking Dead appeals to more people, so it isn't impossible to believe it got GOTY awards. Beyond: Two Souls looks to be a very deep and philosophical journey, which is going to result in mixed reactions. Some people simply aren't going to get it, the demo impressions have already proven that many people simply don't like this game and most of all, there are a lot of amazing games this year. It will probably get a few GOTY awards, but it will probably be on the same tiering as Rayman Legends, not Grand Theft Auto V.

Ezz20132023d ago (Edited 2023d ago )

TWD and journey were GOTY simplay because 2012 was lacking big time in term of games
if those games come out this year
they would not won any thing

Beyond win GOTY in a year that have 2 of the highest rated games in the past 3 years (The last of us and GTA 5) ?!
i think that near impossible
GOTY will be between The Last Of Us and GTA5
keep it real guys

but hey, it doesn't have to win GOTY
the game is great and you guys will enjoy it
more awesome exclusives to ps3 owners to play :)

LightningSamus2022d ago


Uncharted 2 won game of the year in 2009 and that is an exclusive.

I'm playing it right now!! and the game is honestly miles in front of heavy rain.. and just overall spectacular, but I would definitely not say GOTY... not mine anyway. Last of Us grabs that.

MadMax2023d ago (Edited 2023d ago )

Never understood the big fuss over TLOU. Got bored with it pretty quick. It seemed too slow and repetitve. Ive been playing Beyond all weekend and am enjoying it immensely! Much better of a game and far more entertaining i think.

BitbyDeath2022d ago

@MadMax, I loved TLOU for the story.
Not sure if it is my GOTY, but either that, GTAV and hopefully Beyond.

So many awesome games.

Wouldn't be surprised if this game ends up with lots of negative/mixed reviews, this game clearly isn't for everyone.
But I know that I'll love it nonetheless.

Ezz20132023d ago (Edited 2023d ago )

same here
and it's indeed an awesome game (i already own it)

Hellsvacancy2022d ago (Edited 2022d ago )

That's because it's from an awesome developer, I bought Fahrenheit kinda by accident, I didn't plan to buy it I just saw it on offer and thought what the hell

Turned out to be one the best games i'd ever played at the time, gameplay was totally different from what I was used to but the story was told really well

When I was a kid I used to read these fantasy books "Travelling through the darkened forest a stranger approaches you with a grim looking face"
-turn to page 113 to ask the man for directions
-turn to page 77 to kill and loot the man
-turn to page 200 to ignore the man

I LOVED those books, I like having choices

camel_toad2023d ago

I might be wrong but I think heavy rain was received with mixed reviews too, just a matter of taste - but I loved it as I'm sure I'll love Beyond. I've loved everything quantic dream has done since Omikron.

Quantic Dream does such a great job of pulling you in to their worlds.

GinkgoID2023d ago

I kind of agree. Clearly it is a game that will polarize people. There will be a many who get it and love it, and others who wont and hate it. I fully expect that there will huge variation in the reviews. Far more than most games.

That's what happens when you do something different and pushing boundaries.

Bobby Kotex2023d ago

Heavy Rain got an 87 Metacritic so the gameplay didn't stop it from getting a good score. If the game gets a bad score it's probably not the gameplay.

imahustla192023d ago

this game definitely isn't for everyone. iv got plenty of friends who would skip every cut scene because they ain't playing. PPL like that will hate this game. Me personally i cant wait to check it out.

showtimefolks2023d ago

give media some credit, majority liked heavy rain and i believe this game will also receive positive reviews. gaming media has matured enough to give game of the year to walking dead and journey while some gamers still say indie or small titles don't matter

i say overall B2S could get 83-85/100

Tom Chick
Will All rip this game apart trust me.
Just wait for the 2/5, 6/10 scores.
I will be buying this game anyway day one.
Loved Heavy Rain (it wasn't perfect) but had a lot of fun with it and I liked atmosphere.

BitbyDeath2022d ago


Funny vid, check it out if you haven't already.

hellzsupernova2023d ago

This isn't the kind of studio who makes games to review high. I played heavy rain 8 times and loved it every time. I will buy this regardless. Plus edge have been riding the sony wave since e3

buckley2022d ago

Well.. you were wrong. Tom gave it a 9, Polygon an 8.

That said, they seem to be in the minority this time

PR_FROM_OHIO2023d ago

This game could've gotten a 3/10 and that still won't stop me from buying this 2morro and enjoying it! Like Playstation_4 said this game won't appeal to everyone!
